Hitachi’s C10FCE2 10-inch Compound Miter Saw is designed for easy use and is the perfect example of the saying “dynamite comes in small packages.” With a 15-amp motor that delivers a very impressive no load speed of 5,000 rpms, this little saw could be the perfect saw for both a beginner and a seasoned professional.
The best feature about the C10FCE2 is the powerful motor that can produce a 5,000 rpm no load speed to enable this little guy to cut through the hardest material and still leave a clean finish. Combined its big power with its small body and you have one of the best portable miter saws that you could ask for.
The C10FCE2 packs plenty of advantages for a small saw. A left and right miter angle range of 0 degrees to 52 degrees and 0 to 45 degree left bevel range increases the C10FCE2’s versatility. The 4-inch flip fence enables vertical cutting of crown molding. Vibration reducing Elastomer covers the grip to help with fatigue and increases comfort during extended operation. At under 27 pounds, this saw is ideal for mobile jobs as well as in the shop.
The thumb actuated positive miter stops let you fine tune the angle to your liking. This design makes changing blade angle a snap. And the dust collector helps you keep your workspace free of dirt and dust and not obstruct your work, or damage the inner components of your miter saw. Finally, the 5-year warranty is one of the best in the industry and reflects the company’s confidence in the saw and confidence in how well users will love it.
There are surprisingly very few disadvantages with the C10FCE2. One however would be that the bevel is cannot go to the left and right. This kind of limits some of the cutting jobs it can complete. Another shortcoming that stands out is the lack of a laser or lighting system to show where the blade is going to make contact with the wood before the cut begins.
And the final disadvantage of this miter saw is the size of lumber it can cut. Only able to cut material no larger than standard 2-inches by 6-inches, users will have to carefully consider the types of projects they are planning on using it for.
Great price tag, great features, and very well thought-out constructions makes this saw not only the lightest in its class, but also one of the best. Perfect for trim carpenters, framers, and woodworkers, the C10FCE2 will be the ultimate tool in your shop or on the site. Additionally, it will make a great saw for the beginner and hobbyist to start off on or begin learning the ins and outs of using a miter saw.
